  • Moderators can't delete post and ban user

    Hello

    We're running vBulletin 5.4.0. I don't know when, but at some point some of our moderators lost their ability to delete a post and ban a user.

    Here are screenshots that one moderator made while trying it on a test post:

    First is the thread as it loads up:

Views:	42
Size:	47.0 KB
ID:	4393537

    Then he selects the post and clicks on the pull down menu on the right:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	image_119895.jpg
Views:	34
Size:	52.9 KB
ID:	4393539

    Then he clicks on "delete posts" and this comes up:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	image_119899.jpg
Views:	34
Size:	54.9 KB
ID:	4393538

    He clicks the options (which used to be labeled "spamomatic") to delete other posts and ban the user, then he clicks the blue button to proceed.

    Click image for larger version

Views:	43
Size:	46.1 KB
ID:	4393534

    Then this box pops up, confirming that he wants to ban the user. He types in a reason and clicks proceed.

    Then he gets this error message:

    In Admin CP, "Administrator Permissions Manager" the user has all the permissions "yes". The primary usergroup for the user is "Moderators".

    There are so many permissions i the "Usergroup Manager"/"Moderators" that I don't know what to look for. But "Can Delete Posts" is set to "yes".

    Can anyone please help me figure out what the problem is?

    The closest I could find myself is that it's possible that moderators aren't intended to be able to delete users by default. Is that the case? And if so, would you suggest that this permission be given to moderators or that the moderators be promoted to administrators?

    Thanks in advance.

      Make sure you have "Can See Deletion Notices" turned on under "Forum Viewing Permissions"

          Glenn Vergara has a free mod to insert ads between posts. It's brilliant, works on Cloud too, highly recommend it

            Hi MrsTiggywinkle , you should have a look at AndrewSmithCWHI 's site.

            The ad integration is way better as it is not limited to first and last post, and it also works on all pages without having to repeat the first post on them.

              Thanks for the suggestion bootsie1 - but I'm a bit wary of doing that given the number of channels. There are 13 moderators and 50 channels, that's a lot of clicking to fix every moderator on every channel.

              If I go to channel management and select the user name from the dropdown for the top-most-level forum (where it says 13 in the following screenshot)

              Then I see the following permissions:

              Click image for larger version

Name:	1.png
Views:	34
Size:	49.2 KB
ID:	4393734

              Does that mean that these permissions aren't inherited to sub-channels?

              Is mine an unusual problem or is it unusual for moderators to have the power to ban users?

                Thanks for the suggestion, but I can't find this permission. Where is "Forum Viewing Permissions"?

                I went to "channel management"/"view permissions" and found "Can See Deletion Notices" in there, but in there it seems that every permission for every user for every channel is "no", which is certainly not true. I wonder if I'm clicking the wrong button somewhere...

                  Forum Viewing Permissions is one of the groups in the Channel Permissions page. If you look they are broken up into groups and each group has a header and a title.

                  If you want your moderators to be moderators in every channel then you should set them up as Super Moderators by placing them in the Super Moderator group.

                  You would edit individual moderator permissions under Channel Management -> Moderator Permissions.

                  Very rarely do sites like "Moderators" ban users. This is typically a job handled by Super Moderators or Administrators.

                    Still couldn't find it, but doesn't matter:

                    That's good to know and tells me what to do next - the appropriate moderators needed to be promoted.

                    Thanks for the explanation!
